Biography

Amanda Russhell Wallace is a multimedia, multidisciplinary-interested artist. Her work ranges from documentary family photography to current experiments with time-based media. Many of her projects explore internal and external (social) identities. She considers the notion that cultural identity and acceptance are based on the remnants of speech, texts and imagery gathered and carried in various pockets of the brain throughout time. These remnants are used to represent the associations and typologies we use to form, assign (to ourselves and others), and perform identity daily, whether at home, work, the public and online or on social media. Her artwork is exhibited nationally and internationally.

Wallace teaches courses in analog and digital photography, advanced topics in photography and the senior exhibition workshop.
